*** My 4-star review ***
*** The second TENET trailer is here ***
“Welcome to the afterlife…”
Want to know what this is about? Me too! Tenet means a principle on which a belief or theory is based, and the trailer implies this is around John David Washington’s character, who appears to be a spy and appears to refuse to give up details of his colleagues, which appears to be a test which he passes.
It appears so, anyway. There are no character names listed on IMDB, where it simply says: “The plot is currently unknown. The project is described as an action epic revolving around international espionage, time travel, and evolution”.
In the trailer (below) Washington is attempting to save the world from WW3, a doomsday worse than a nuclear holocaust. But events are taking place before they happen.
Watch the trailer here and, um, make up your own mind:
TENET is directed by Christopher Nolan and is released on 17 July 2020 by Warner Bros Pictures.
In addition to Washington, the film stars Robert Pattinson (looking very like David McCallum in The Man From U.N.C.L.E.), Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Clémence Poésy, Himesh Patel, Michael Caine and Kenneth Branagh.
